I had this idea over 15 years ago; kinda surprised that no one had used it.<p><IMG SRC="http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s212/b5v2000/09May25013.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>NJ does not have a system where you can find out what config is available/has been used. You send in a wishlist of four options via mail w/ $50. Two weeks later I recvd a postcard telling me what was approved, and that it would be ten weeks until the plates arrived. Another two weeks and they were in hand.<br>I like it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Scott

The purpose of this post is for Scott to show you how much smarter he is than you.<p>So far, it seems to be working <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (HayaCruza)

K = 1000, therefore: 186,000 MPS = speed of light = Lightspeed<p>Scott, You should have a sticker (3"x3") on your rear window with this image. <br><IMG SRC="http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p319/lincmitchell/Lightspeed.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Glad you finally got it. I knew you were wanting it, so good to see it come to fruition. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

May have to do the same myself - have a minor in Astrophysics so I kinda' like this stuff. Hey! Off topic - 3" custom exhaust this week. You'll really like this one - will post some pics.

KM for KILO Miles is wrong on so many different levels....<p>186K MPS or 186K-MPS would have went so much further.<p>How often do you really do calculations using C in non-metric units?

I guess the best part is that only other dorks will know that you're a dork. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Sorry...couldn't resist.

Actually "k" (small letter) means "kilo" which in greek means 1000 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>It's OK that some of them didn't get it... Probably they slept thru Physics classes...<p>and for some reference <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SI_prefix" TARGET="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SI_prefix</A><p>Art

I originally read it as 186km (kilometers) per second. That's closer to the speed of light through my failed angle gear. <p>Be warned...my sense of humor becomes increasingly more dry as the subject matter becomes more cerebral in nature.
